    Is this a thing...?



    From an ad for some potentially crappy cheapish wheels on Amazon. Do people actually ride with the stem backwards, or is that a hilarious ad fail (or both)?

    If the wheels sink a boat, it'd have to be a boat of significantly worse quality than the wheels themselves. I was thinking more about, you know... rolling well in a predictable fashion for awhile.

    Yes, I'm pretty sure that is a thing of some kind. In fact, after looking at it some more, I am 100% certain.

    I'm going to go ahead and say it is not a thing, just for the sake of opposition.

    Is its existence inherent in itself or dependent on our perception of it?

    How can one person imperically prove that this thing is in the world, making it a real thing, and not just a thing in one's own mind, making it just a mind thing?

    Then you're asking the questions is it possible there is a mind-independent world as well as absolute certainty/proof.
